Many people who usually go to their GP for ear wax removal have recently been told this service is no longer available on the NHS. As a result, they are now being advised to manage their own ear wax build-up or to seek ear wax removal from private providers. However, advice on self-management is inconsistent and sometimes dangerous, and the cost of private removal can make it unaffordable.
The Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID) wants to make sure everyone is offered clear advice on managing excess ear wax safely themselves and has access to professional removal on the NHS if self-management doesn’t work. This campaign page highlights research by RNID and outlines how people can get involved in the campaign by writing to their MP and local healthcare organisations.
